Here is a tour of my coupon binder. I have it broken down a lot. I am usually shopping with my toddler and my infant and don't have the time to stand in the aisle looking thought all of the cleaning coupons. Not to mention the fact that the longer I stand there, the more likely it is that my toddler will attempt to pull something off the shelf. Of course, it will fall and I will be yelling "clean up on aisle 6". And my luck is that he will break something that I don't have a coupon for and will have to pay full price for something I don't even like, such as a fancy jar of anchovies! So speed is essential in our shopping. In order to make things go faster I have all of my categories broken down into sub categories. Read on for more info about that.
So here is the binder I picked up at Wal-mart during a back-to-school sale. I also got a small pair of scissors, dividers, page protectors, and baseball card inserts (up at the front by the poke-mon cards) while I was at it.
In the front pocket I have my large coupons and the coupons that are for $ off $$ coupons ($10/$50).
Here are the categories that I have written down on the page dividers and the sub categories I have written on each base ball card holder.
- Lunch Meat
- Frozen Dinner
- Hot dogs/Sausage
- Dessert/ Ice Cream
- Peanut Butter
- Dried Fruit
- Snack Bars
Then I have my other products in the second half.
- Toilet Paper
- Paper Towels
- Air freshener
- Hand Soap
- Shaving Cream
- Lotion/Skin Care
In the back I have my target store coupons and Walgreens Register Rewards.
I know its broken down alot but that is what works for me! It may not work for you. Everyone has their own style. Well that was my binder. It's still in the making and it took me alot of naptimes to get it together right. Good luck with your clipping!
